Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s next directorial 'Piku' starring Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan will hit the screens April 30, 2015.
The first schedule of MSM Motion Pictures, Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited (SECL), Sircar and Ronnie Lahiri’s Rising Sun Films’ project will go on the floors in August 2014.
Sircar, who has worked with the Big B in yet-to-release "Shoebite" and forthcoming fiction TV show "Yudh", is also looking forward to teaming up with the actors.
"The charisma of Mr. Bachchan, seamless acting of Deepika with the versatile flair of Irrfan Khan and the evergreen Moushami Chaterjee will make 'Piku' an experience for me. I am looking forward to this fantastic opportunity of working together with such gifted talent from the industry," the "Madras Cafe" director said in a statement.
The makers are confident the team will do a great job.
"Working with Mr.Amitabh Bachchan yet again in my new role is an absolute honour. As for Shoojit, I have been an admirer of his work since ‘Yahaan’ and I am really looking forward to working with him and the delightful ensemble cast which includes the very talented Deepika, Irrfan and many others,” said Sneha Rajani, deputy president and head, MSM Motion Pictures.
